ewokracing i have heard 17 is a pretty good combo if you have the stock 43 on the rear also on your 04 sprint the speedo is connected to the front tire so changing sprockets doesn't affect it that's on the 1050s

18/43 is what most of us go for to get rolling a bit quicker. 17 will probably save you some wear on the front tire!

Don't know how it is down under, but it's hard to beat JT sprockets up over.

Cheers,

question re tyres.

I have pilot road 3's. Literally brand new with less than 2,000 kms on them.

What should the pressure be front & rear for mostly dry riding? Something around 34/34 when cold?

Also, do the front discs need machining or should they never be machined? I've had an annoying squeal ever since I had the Brembo pads fitted.

36/42 f/r is what the book says; a lot of people like a little less than that, maybe 10% down. Don't know about machining discs; I gather that happens more often with non-floaters. You might try some copperslip or caliper grease on the back sides of the pads to get rid of the squeal.

Cheers,
